Meeting Point: Saigon Restaurant, Sihlstrasse 97

Hello all,

Come join the inaugural 20 chf-and-under Zurich Lunch Club!

The one and only rule: we choose a restaurant which serves entrees mostly under 20 chf.

First lunch (please note the date change from Tues to Thurs):

Saigon Restaurant
97 Sihlstrasse
Thursday, March 24, 12:30PM

Please rsvp by Wed so I know how large a table to reserve.

cheers,
mrbumby

Great idea! I'd come if I weren't still on crutches - trains steps are too difficult without someone to help pull you in.

Hope you'll do it another time

Swisspea: I was originally thinking Thursdays as well.. Totally up for switching dates. Kids totally welcome.

Digg: Can you make it now that it's Thursday? I realize we don't have the biggest group going..

JennifromSC: Get better soon and come to the next one!

cheers,
mrbumby

I like that restaurant, and am getting bored with my lunches at the moment.

ShazzaMcGowan: this is the first lunch, so not sure about the ratio! Am assuming it will be a nice mix, though. Look forward to seeing you at the next one.

Re: 20chf-and-under Zurich Lunch Club

Stupid question. How do i recognize you.
I will be the confused guy with a black jacket, scanning the tables looking for someone he can not see. ( my glasses are old ..., very old. )
Will the table be reserved under the name of ... 'English Forum' ?

Re: 20chf-and-under Zurich Lunch Club

I'm making the reservation this morning under "English Forum," but to keep it easy, I'm actually a she (surprise, surprise, given the "mr"), Asian, with a little-above shoulder length hair, and will be wearing a white t-shirt with a short-sleeved dark blue cardigan. I can also put a piece of paper on the table scrawled with "EF."

See you there!

Re: 20chf-and-under Zurich Lunch Club

Running into a bit of a snag: Saigon won't take a reservation for 5. I'll get there earlier to try to stake out a table, though. If this fails, and once everyone arrives, perhaps we can go to New Point two blocks away?

How do we recognize you?

Edit: Forget it, just read your post... slow morning.
